That might be a good option for next year.  The restaurants I already set up for this year can't handle more than about 40.

  OK I didn't know you had already sold out. then again there may be a few more restaurants in town.I know that sounds sarcastic but I was just thinking like income for the club. and there are a few Fiero owners there.

Oh, yes.  It's a very good idea.  There isn't an entrance fee and everyone is free to join in.  I always set up a lunch restaurant and a dinner restaurant that can serve a projected number of participants.  Lately, it hasn't exceeded 40 persons.  Maybe not even 30, so that's what I've looked for to serve lunch.  I try to get everyone in, seated and out within an hour.  Hour and a half, max.  Restaurants have to be set up well in advance, and the scouting party are the guinea pigs to test the food and service.  They have to be set up well in advance so we know if we have to change the route.  Lunch stops are usually the problem because they're in a small town.  I don't think there's even a McDonald's in the town of our lunch stop.  There are two larger restaurants, both in the old downtown about 3 miles off our path, and neither have much parking space. 

The evening dinner is a different matter.  I still try to arrange seating for the same number, but it's usually a larger restaurant because we end up in a larger city. 

If we do draw a large following next year, I suggest we charge a $5 or $10 entrance fee to cover printing expenses for route sheets, folders, etc.  I already am in the mental planning stages for next year's Run For The Hills and the lunch stop will be a larger restaurant with a wonderfully scenic view from the dining room.

I'm looking for someone to share rooms with.  I will cover the more expensive room in Asheville if you will cover the less expensive room in Clayton.  Let me know, ASAP.

Still looking for someone to share rooms with.  I've already made the Asheville reservation.

We need to have at least 10 of the rooms booked, otherwise the rates go up to regular rates.  No Discount.

Now comes the big question.  Who's Going???

Dare I ask if fewer than 10 rooms are booked?

I haven't checked.  I know none of the Michigan club people are staying at either hotel.

I'm going -- just made my reservations. Can't offer my room to share just yet -- not sure what my brothers are doing.

I understand, Dewey.  If you're at the meeting, I'll bring the steering column part.

EVERYONE WHO'S MADE THEIR RESERVATIONS USING THE GEORGIA FIEROS GROUP CODE, PLEASE CHECK WITH THE RED ROOF INN IN ASHEVILLE.  THE CLUB RECEIVED AN EMAIL STATING THAT NONE OF THE ROOMS HAVE BEEN RESERVED.  THAT INCLUDES MY ROOM, FOR WHICH I HAVE A RESERVATION CONFIRMATION CODE.
